Excessive widening of the aorta is called ‘aneurysm formation’ and is a life-threatening characteristic of the genetic connective tissue disease Marfan Syndrome (MFS). In her PhD thesis, Stijntje Hibender explores different drugs for their capacity to inhibit aortic aneurysm growth and thus prevent rupture of the vessel wall.
